Subject: The Missing Text?
A very brief and concise show about the three major command line operating systems of the day; CP/M, DOS (PC or MS) and UNIX/XENIX.

Although, at the end of the show, Herb Lechner mentions reading Chapter 8 of a text, does anyone know which text he is referring to?

Subject: Interesting
Interesting look at operating systems as of 1984. None of the participants predict how big MS-DOS was gonna became.
